The Dresden Dolls
The Dresden Dolls are a duo from Boston, formed after a Halloween party in 2000, composed of singer/keyboardist/songwriter Amanda Palmer and drummer/occasional guitarist and vocalist Brian Viglione. They describe their style as "Brechtian punk cabaret", and have exposed an underground dark cabaret movement that started gaining momentum in the early '90s with artists like Salon Betty and Gavin Friday.

And don't tell me that I'm wrong
And don't tell me not to reference my songs within my songs
- And you thought you could change the world by opening your legs
Well, it isn't very hard
Try kicking them instead.
And you thought you could change his mind
by changing your perfume to the kind his mother wore
Oh God, Delilah, why?
I never met a more impossible girl.
